Deco Diamonds

I just finished the under-painting for this piece (oil on canvas, 60″ x 36″) that uses a fabulous Art Deco diamond pattern. The painting still has a ton of work and many more layers ahead, but overall, I’m happy with the direction it is going. Although it does not include Italian mosaic (like in my previous paintings), I feel that the repeating diamond shape references a similar geometric configuration. Below is the under painting and pattern I am referencing to give you a sense of where the painting is headed. I am really looking forward to painting all the subtle gradients and transitions in the shadows.
